Survey Says U.S. Patients Pay More, Get Less Than Those in Other Western Nations
By Rob Stein
Washington Post Staff Writer

Stein: "Americans pay more when they get sick than people in other Western nations and get more confused, error-prone treatment, according to the largest survey to compare U.S. health care with other nations."

The Unknown Candidate: Overhauling the healthcare system in this country should be a number one government priority. But it looks like thousands more will have to be locked out of the system before anyone in Washington has the will to even half-way seriously address the problem. Write your congressmen and senators and demand action. They need to hear from you--and fast.
